Xiaomi is probably best known for creating smartphones, but in case you did not know, Xiaomi has actually created a bunch of other kinds of products like smart bulbs, screwdriver sets, air purifiers, and so on. They have even dabbled in monitors, and according to the latest reports, it seems that we can soon expect a 27-inch gaming monitor from the company.
Wearables for the most part aren’t particularly expensive, but we get that for some, they’d rather not fork out a couple of hundred bucks for it. This is where Xiaomi truly shines, where the company’s Mi Band series has managed to help the company capture a fair bit of the market due to its incredibly low prices.
Some of you might recall that a couple of years ago, Xiaomi spin-off brand Pocophone launched the Pocophone F1. This was largely considered by many to be something of a sleeper hit, where for its price, it came with some pretty impressive flagship hardware that almost put it on par with some of the more expensive phones out there.
We do a lot on our phones these days, such as texting, calling, and surfing the web. Some of us even use it for work where we might access sensitive information that we don’t want others to see. Unfortunately for Xiaomi users, it seems that a report from Forbes has revealed that the company’s devices are apparently collecting browsing data on its users.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 / CC9 Camera ReviewEditor's Pick
When it launched, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 / Note 10 Pro (called Xiaomi CC9 in other regions) was the first commercially available 108 Megapixel mobile camera. Since late 2019 the Megapixel War is back in full swing, and it will only increase in 2020 as phone chips, such as the Snapdragon 865, can support up to 200 Megapixel cameras.
Companies such as Razer have been creating phones with 120Hz refresh rate displays. That’s pretty much as high as it has ever gotten, but it seems that Xiaomi is pushing the envelope with the Redmi K30 5G as the company has demoed the phone with a 144Hz refresh rate, making it the highest refresh rate we’ve seen on a smartphone to date.
Back in 2018, YouTuber MKBHD decided to run a blind smartphone camera test in which he pitted a variety of phones released in 2018 against each other, where users would then vote on social media which is their favorite photo. The results were very surprising in which the budget (but flagship) Pocophone F1 nearly walked away the winner.
Fast-charging technology isn’t exactly new, but as some of you might recall, earlier this year, Xiaomi took the wraps off their Super Charge Turbo fast-charging technology that offered speeds of up to 100W. What this means is that based on a 4,000mAh battery, it would only take 17 minutes to fill it up.
Cheating is frowned upon by most developers of video games, and in recent years, many have come down hard on cheaters by outright banning them from their games. However, it seems that maybe Niantic’s zeal to ban cheaters could have accidentally resulted in innocent players being caught up in it.
Last month, Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi launched a new TV. It came in the form of a 70-inch 4K smart TV which was priced roughly around the $500 mark. Given that we’ve seen smaller TVs from other brands priced much higher, it’s not surprising that the TV has since become quite a hit.
As some of you might know, Xiaomi makes a lot of different products and not smartphones. For example, the company also makes its own robot vacuum cleaner that we suppose could be seen as a much cheaper version of other robot vacuum cleaners in the market. In fact, it might even have a slight added advantage because it can be modified if you are willing to put in the effort.
When it comes to TVs, Xiaomi is no stranger to that field. The company has launched many TVs under its Mi TV lineup, but it looks like for the first time ever, the company will be launching a new TV under its Redmi branding. This has resulted in the Redmi TV, a 70-inch 4K TV with support for HDR.
Xiaomi is known for their affordable smartphones, but in case you didn’t know, Xiaomi also makes a bunch of other products and gadgets that are equally affordable. One of those products is their Yeelight series of smart lightbulbs, which are possibly one of the cheapest smart lighting solutions in the market today.
